Watch: Michael Gove ushered to safety as angry protesters surround him at Westminster

Michael Gove – the Levelling Up Secretary – was rescued yesterday as dozens of demonstrators surrounded him at Westminster.

Mr Gove remained remarkably calm as people – many with cameras – swarmed around him.

A posse of police officers surrounded the Minister and shuffled him to safety.


The incident comes only days after Conservative MP Sir David Amess, 69, was stabbed to death during a constituency surgery.

The Prime Minister’s spokesman said:

“The harassment and intimidation of anyone going about their daily business was completely unacceptable.

“We will expect the police to take this kind of behaviour seriously.

“While peaceful protest remains an important cornerstone of our democracy, threatening, intimidating or abusive language cannot be tolerated.”

No one was arrested at the scene, but Metropolitan Police officers are studying the footage posted online.

There is also video from cameras worn by the police.
